Five Additional Witnesses Against Rabbi Mordechai Elon

Jerusalem District prosecutors filed an amended indictment, Thursday, in the indecent-acts case against Rabbi Mordechai Elon, to reflect the addition of five witnesses, including his students, according to a Monday-morning report by the Ma'ariv daily.

The District Attorney's Office said it felt the additional witnesses will strengthen their case. Rabbi Elon's attorney said he did not view the new witnesses as significant.
